If we want to build a work culture where everyone feels safe and valued, we need to have an understanding of the concepts of gender identity and sexual orientation. Your gender identity and sexual orientation are important parts of who you are.
When we make assumptions about a person’s gender identity and have expectations about how they should behave, we risk making that person feel unwelcome or threatened, even if we do it unintentionally.
This program builds on information from the related Moxie Media program “Understanding Sex and Gender” in the Building an Inclusive Workforce: Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation series. This training explores the terms associated with gender identity and sexual orientation and aims to dispel common misconceptions.
